Description

Status quo or problem addressed by the commitment From 2012 to 2015 the Technical Secretariat of the National Anti-corruption Strategy monitored the implementation of anti-corruption preventive measures and the evaluation indicators. Until 2020, approximately 4000 central and local public institutions will have to make a mandatory selfassessment of the anti-corruption preventive measures and answer 122 indicators, resulting in 488.000 open data sets. In this respect, the SNA platform will be developed to facilitate centralization of data, uploaded by public institutions, in an open format. The institutions will include subordinate agencies, state-owned companies, municipalities, county councils, hospitals etc. and the resulted data will be made available to the public.

Commitment Aim

As part of Romania’s National Anti-Corruption Strategy (SNA), more than 4,000 national and local public institutions are required to conduct mandatory self-assessments of their progress implementing anti-corruption measures mentioned in the SNA until 2020. [88] This effort aimed to create 488,000 data points that track the self-reported efforts to prevent corruption as measured by the 122 survey indicators—e.g. conflicts of interests, incompatibilities, ethical code, and random distribution of service tasks. To this end, the commitment planned to develop a platform to centralize the reports (Milestone 1), to develop a delivery guide for the reports (Milestone 2), and automate the collection of the reports (Milestone 4), to open the results of this assessment—previously only available to the Technical Secretariat of the SNA—in a user-friendly format (Milestone 3), and to collaborate with civil society to periodically review the indicators (Milestone 5).

STATUS

Midterm: Substantial

Milestones 1 (the new SNA platform), 2 (a guide for how to upload the data on the SNA platform), and 4 (IT applications to facilitate the implementation of the national anti-corruption strategy) were substantially completed at the time of the IRM progress report. A limited number of datasets were submitted to the SNA portal.

End-of-term: Substantial

A small dataset containing the answers for the 122 SNA survey indicators of 283 local public administrations was published on sna.just.ro. [89] Further, Milestone 3 (opening the public administration’s self-reported efforts to prevent corruption on two data portals) and Milestone 5 (revising the indicators used to measure the public administration’s efforts to prevent corruption) were still not started according to the government’s self-assessment report. [90]

Did it Open Government?

Access to information: Marginal

The commitment opened access to the results of the mandatory self-assessment that the public administration has to undergo as part of the SNA in a user-friendly format. Nevertheless, the publication of a single dataset limits the scope of this commitment, as it does not allow the measurement of the progress of national and local institutions in implementing the necessary anti-corruption measures.

Carried forward?

This commitment is not continued in the 2018–2020 national action plan.
